I remember the day I first saw a V-Max, in a Yamaha dealership in '85. In those days, that bike seemed like it was from another planet. I looked it over and just said, "whoa, this thing's a hot rod'', not because it looked fast (which it did), but because it looked like a hot rod.
One of the big bike magazines of the day had a byline on their road test "Motorcycling's answer to the Titan IV rocket'. For those of you too young to know, that's the rocket (from the Titan to the Titan IV) that launched every US spacecraft.
